Buying your freehold

Buying your freehold

Many owners of long-leasehold houses have the right to buy their freehold under the 1967 Act.

A similar right may be available to a group of owners of long-leasehold flats in a block to buy their freehold under the 1993 Act. We advise on the various elements of each of these processes, including:

  • assessing eligibility
  • instructing valuers and surveyors
  • financing the purchase
  • participation agreements
  • the statutory notices
  • attendance at tribunal
  • the creation of new long leases for applicable flats following enfranchisement

Enfranchisement is not a one-sided and inevitable process. We advise freeholders, intermediate landlords and management companies on their rights and responsibilities throughout the process.
